Tie-breaker in Tromsö

After 100 swiss boards and 28 phase-of-16 knock-out boards, you are tied with your opps in a European Championship. How many boards would you be prepared to play, to break the tie? 4 boards you say? How about just 1 board?

Yes, according to the tie breaking procedure in Tromsö, whichever team wins the first IMP, wins the match. Sudden-death style.

Team Full House played 3NT, that just made. Team Mortensen, at the other table, reached 6. The heart king finesse was off so the contract was 1 down. The TD comes to the table and tells you that you are eliminated. Best of luck in your future careers.

Wouldn't it be fair to have at least a second board?
